Bill Moyers: Outrageous Bill Known As “The Animal and Ecological Terrorism Act” Seeks to Silence Big-Ag Whistleblowers (VIDEO Below) : Muckrakers and activists have been working to expose the brutality of industrialized meat production since Upton Sinclair’s writing of The Jungle in 1906. But an ALEC model bill known as “The Animal and Ecological Terrorism Act” would make it a crime to film at animal facilities — such as factory farms or slaughterhouses — with the intent to “defame the facility or its owner.” So-called “ag-gag” laws that appear inspired by the ALEC model have been passed in several states. This report, produced byOkapi Productions, LLC and the Schumann Media Center, Inc. looks at the effect of these laws on both our food supply and our freedom of speech.

Developing Self-Sufficient & Self-Sustaining Local Economies
Currently our farming culture is one of Industrial Farming. These are often animals (especially cows) that are kept so badly and are so ill that you would reject buying one... especially if your goal was to eat it. And you wouldn't hunt it unless there was no other food around and you were desperate. This is covered in great detail in the mainstream media after 20 year campaign my many to make this knowledge public so I won't go into that. I would just like to point out where this sort of farming is leading us (on a global level).
The following examples are from the United States where Industrial Farming seems to have reached it's complete modern form (completely heartless):

Why You Should Be Worried About the California Mad Cow Case
Altogether, the USDA program tests about 40,000 cows a year for mad cow—a tiny fraction of the millions that are slaughtered or otherwise die each year. (Bloomberg puts the portion tested annually at "less than 0.1 percent of the U.S. cattle herd.") By contrast, in the European Union, all sick or downed cattle over the age of 4 years old, all healthy cows over six years, are tested before being slaughtered or rendered. The California cow, the USDA said in its Thursday statement, was 10 years and seven months old—so it would have been automatically tested in Europe.
Can You Get Mad Cow Disease From Milk?
Unlike, say, bacterial pathogens, prions are extremely resistant to heat. So, I've found two different studies that suggest that scrapie does in fact transmit from sheep to sheep through milk. Now, this research doesn't show that BSE can move from cow milk to humans. But it represents evidence that prions can move from animal to animal through milk.
